A Rave, But One Little Complaint
14 July 2002 | by (Indiana, USA) – See all my reviews

This was the best show of the '80s, and, like so many other great shows, it was never given a chance. Due to poor scheduling, being pre-empted, etc., it never found its audience.

Michael Beck, in my opinion, was the true star of the show. This man is one of those very understated, underrated, under recognized actors that gives a good performance no matter what. While I loved John Hancock as "Chicken", I find it rather disturbing that Mr. Beck is shuttled to the "also starring" category while Mr. Hancock - a supporting player - is listed first!

It is a shame that this series never got what it deserved - a chance to prove itself. It went far beyond the "buddy show" syndrome of the time, in that it showed two men who could care about one another even though they fought about every five minutes!!
